If the council tax system was reformed as to eliminate council tax payments for those in Band A,

reduce the burden on those in Bands B and C, and charge those living in prime property a higher

annual fee, an added £1.2 billion would be available to fund the NHS.

As an added benefit, many NHS

nurses and employees would benefit from a reduced council tax burden as those areas with the most

workers in health and social services are also heavily populated by Band A, B, and C properties.
